This literature review examines the efficacy of employing visual aids to enhance the acquisition of English vocabulary among deaf students. It investigates the vital role of visual aids in conveying meaning, enhancing memory and cognitive functions, and fostering engagement. The review discusses their effectiveness in promoting contextual comprehension, improving learning outcomes, and the integration of visual aids with sign language for deaf learners. The study also addresses the challenges that deaf students encounter, such as learning English as a foreign language, lack of exposure, and the complexities of abstract concepts. The implications of this research highlight the need for collaborative efforts between ESL teachers and sign language experts to develop accurate and culturally relevant visual aids. The review concludes by emphasizing the importance of context-based learning, hands-on experiences, and multisensory approaches to cater to the diverse learning needs of deaf students. This synthesis contributes valuable insights for educators, researchers, and policymakers seeking to enhance vocabulary learning experiences for deaf students through the effective integration of visual aids.
